“Lantern Stories” Opening Reception — 開幕典禮 《燈籠故事》– RESCHEDULED FOR 9/23

Lantern Stories Opening Reception on Monday September 19

Artist Yu-Wen Wu’s Lantern Stories have begun to light up evenings in Chin Park on The Greenway! Wu’s radiant public artwork comprises thirty one lanterns that celebrate the past, present, and future of Boston’s vibrant Chinatown community. Originally commissioned in 2020, Wu updated the project in 2022 to reflect the realities of the past few years, centering Boston Chinatown’s history of immigration, its culture, and resiliency, along with an expanded exploration of Asian American communities’ impact nationally, particularly around areas of civil rights.

Please join us on Monday, September 19, 2022 for a Opening Reception at Chin Park Plaza to enjoy the public opening outdoors under the beautiful canopy of lanterns, along with music on vinyl spun by our friends at Jukebox.

藝術家吳育雯的《燈籠故事》作品現正在綠道展出! 吳的公共藝術品包括三十一盞燈籠,慶祝及照明充滿活力的波士頓唐人街社區。 委託於 2020 年,於 2022 年為《燈籠故事》加入了新的元素,反映過去兩年社區的改變。作品以波士頓唐人街的移民歷史、文化和強韌力為主,同時探索亞裔美國社區在全國上,特別是爭取公民權利的影響。

歡迎大家 2022 年 9 月 19 日(星期一)參與我們在唐人街牌坊廣場舉辦的開幕儀式,欣賞這些燈籠和音樂隊伍 Jukebox 製作的黑膠唱片音樂。
